We went further and required native. At 10GE interconnect speed, one is
in the recently-upgraded core or metro access layer of most providers.
These parts of the network have been ready (if not set up) for v6 for
at least 5 years now. Did not pose a problem.  All I need to do now is 
to set up the peering ;-) 

Had I been looking for a FE transit I'd had much more issues with v6
connectivity.
